Its aim is to provide legal certainty for the continuous development of electronic-based trading activities (Perdagangan Melalui Sistem Elektronik - "E-Commerce") in Indonesia, and covers, among other things, E-Comerce parties, the general requirements and obligations for E-Commerce, the protection of consumers and personal data and administrative sanctions for violations of GR 80/2019.
This newly issued regulation came into effect on 25 November 2019, and existing E-Commerce business practitioners engaged in E-Commerce business activities before GR 80/2019 became effective are requires to adjust and comply with this regulation within two years of 25 November 2019 (ie by 25 November 2021).
